Shuster Estate To Appeal Superman Ruling? Plus: Adorable Cat Photos!

The Outhouse provides what is, perhaps, the most thorough analysis of this important and long-running legal dispute that has ever been published.

Well, we were pretty sure last month that, following a decision by U.S. District Court  Judge and humorously named Southern gentleman Otis Wright III, the battle over the rights to Superman was finally over, with DC emerging victorious. That seems not to be the case, however, as super-attorney Marc Toberoff is now arguing that a mistake was made in an October ruling by the court, and insisting that one of the fifteen billion rulings that have been made in this case in the last ten years be overturned.

This monumental court case represents a milestone in United States copyright law, and is likely to have ramifications for our society on par with great cases like Dred Scott v. Sanford, Miranda v. Arizona, Rocky v. Bullwinkle, Roe v. Wade, and NWA vs. Tha Police. In response, dear readers, I present to you a highly detailed, thought-provoking legal analysis of the case, which I hope will help give readers a fuller understanding of this important debate and help the comic book community finally find a way to put this troubling matter behind us, once and for all:

[Editor's Note: While Jude Terror promised a thought-provoking legal analysis, what he appears to have submitted is a five-minute video slideshow of adorable cat pictures from YouTube. We're sure this was a copypasta error and Jude will submit his legal analysis later. Until then, we have no choice but to roll with what he's given us.]

In conclusion, ladies and gentlemen of the jury: if the glove does not fit, you must acquit. Thank you.
